Santa Claus Buried In Ireland?

Apparently the remains of St. Nicholas of Myra, the real-life saint who inspired the legend of Santa Claus, are buried at Jerpoint, Ireland, at what was once a Cistercian abbey.

Perhaps, perhaps not. The remains of Catholic saints are spread throughout the world, and no one really knows what is genuine and what isn't anymore in many of the cases. It's a fun story, though.
